Even doe Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party was only created two months ago, Nigel Farage’s party is, for the first time, leading the field according to many polls on Westminster voting intention. Some of the findings indicate that 26 percent of those polled intend to vote for the Brexit Party. Trailing behind in joint second place were Labour and the Liberal Democrats at 20 percent.
Astoundingly, the incumbent Conservative Party came in fourth place at just 18 percent.
Brexit Party Mr Longworth said yesterday: “Nothing is decided yet but my personal view is that we need to have a country that has a dynamic economy with low business and personal taxation.”
Nigel Farage said Mr Longworth insisted the party would continue “to take on the vested interests” that have supported EU membership.
But, fellow Brexit Party member of European Parliament and businessman Richard Tice has said the party will pressure Whitehall to be involved in Brexit preparations.
A certain Mr Tice, who founded the campaign group Leave Means Leave with Mr Longworth, said: “From a standing start, we won the European election so the Government has a moral duty to allow us to be involved as soon as possible.”
The other newly-formed party Change UK fared rather less well than Mr Farage’s, taking in zero percent of the vote. This news comes just a week after half of its eleven MPs quit the party, leaving a beleaguered Anna Soubry in charge.
Even doe Labour’s projected win over the Conservatives, it’s not good news for Jeremy Corbyn.
From another survey survey carried out on May 29 in the same sample, 29 percent of people considered Theresa May a better choice for Prime Minister than Jeremy Corbyn, who stood at 17 percent.
But it wasn’t particularly good news for either of them as 47 percent said they couldn’t choose and 7 percent refused to answer.
Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party has put former British Chambers of Commerce boss John Longworth in charge of drawing up a manifesto as it gears up to fight the next general election.
Mr Longworth, a newly-elected MEP for Yorkshire, was forced to resign from the BCC because of his support for NIGEL Farage’s Brexit. He said the manifesto would be used to shape a post-Brexit future for Britain.
